Fenerbahce – Villeurbanne

Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul (6-10) comes off a home win against Olympiacos Piraeus, its second in the last nine games, and hopes to keep protecting its home court, led by Nando De Colo (11.7 ppg.), Jan Vesely (11.2 ppg., 5.4 rpg.) and Lorenzo Brown (10.2 ppg.). LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne (5-10) plays on the road after three consecutive home games. Norris Cole (12.0 ppg.), David Lighty (11.0 ppg.) and Guerschon Yabusele (10.6 ppg.) have been ASVEL’s top scorers so far this season.

Fenerbahce shared the ball well last week against Olympiacos to finish the game with 25 assists and just 9 turnovers. Those numbers are much better than its season averages – 17.6 assists and 14.5 turnovers. Getting its big men involved was key – Vesely, Ahmet Duverioglu and Danilo Barthel combined for 14-of-17 two-point shooting. That kind of effectiveness and aggressiveness could be needed against a physical team like ASVEL. Marko Guduric has given Fenerbahce an extra scoring threat, too.

ASVEL has allowed opponents to make just 33.8% three-point shots until now. That three-point defense should be needed against great shooters like De Colo, Guduric and Jarell Eddie. Playing at a high rhythm should be important for ASVEL in order to make the most of its athleticism. Cole and Antoine Diot are in charge of setting the right game tempo. Feeding Fall, its most effective scorer, down low is important not just to find easy points, but to get Vesely into foul trouble, too.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-6.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Crvena Zvezda – Panathinaikos

Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (5-11) has won only one of its last seven games and brought back Coach Dejan Radonjic to try to change that streak. With Jordan Loyd (18.7 ppg.) sidelined, Johnny O’Bryant (12.3 ppg.), Corey Walden (11.1 ppg.) and Dejan Davidovac (8.4 ppg.) are its main scoring pillars. Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (5-10) looks for its third road win of the season. Nemanja Nedovic (16.6 ppg.) has been its top scorer until now, followed by Ioannis Papapetrou (12.5 ppg.) and Shelvin Mack (8.6 ppg.).

Zvezda brought in playmaker Quino Colom to improve the team’s ball circulation. Colom ranked sixth in assists per 40 minutes in the 2019-20 EuroLeague (9.1) and should try to find good shots for mismatches such as O’Bryant and especially Davidovac. Zvezda must protect the paint better, as opponents have made 54.7% of their two-point shots on average. With Loyd still out, Walden and Ognjen Dobric should see extended playing time and play aggressive against Nedovic and Mack.

Jordan Loyd missed Round 16 due to COVID-19.

Nedovic had 39 points in Round 16 and plays against his former team in his home country, so this game could not arrive at a better moment for him. Panathinaikos is fifth in rebounds (34.1 rpg.) and should power the boards through Papagiannis, Dinos Mitoglou and Aaron White. Despite ranking fifth in three-point attempts (26.3), Panathinaikos is just 14th from downtown (36.0%). Its main shooters – Nedovic, Mack and Marcus Foster – should improve that effectiveness if they find better shots.

basketball prediction Tip: Panathinaikos Over 78.5 at 1.83 with bet365
(Price correct at 30/12/2020, 09:45 CET, subject to change)

Bayern – Barcelona

FC Bayern Munich (10-6) is on a three-game winning streak at home. Vladimir Lucic (14.4 ppg.) has been out since Round 12, but Jalen Reynolds (13.4 ppg., 6.9 rpg.), Wade Baldwin IV (13.3 ppg.) and Paul Zipser (9.9 ppg.) have been leading the team in his absence. FC Barcelona (11-5) comes off consecutive losses for the first time this season. Nikola Mirotic (16.8 ppg., 6.6 rpg.), Cory Higgins (11.4 ppg.) and Nick Calathes (7.8 ppg., 7.1 apg.) are its main pillars.

Bayern ranks 15th in two-point shooting percentage, having made 51.3% of its attempts inside the arc. There is room for improvement, especially since it takes more two-point shots (42.2 per game) than any other team in the competition. Stopping Mirotic is one of Bayern’s keys to this game and it will rely on Reynolds, Zipser and JaJuan Johnson to play physical defense against him. Bayern recently added D.J. Seeley and James Gist, two experienced players who make the German powerhouse deeper and thus even more competitive.

Vladimir Lucic has missed the last four games.

Barcelona is shooting the ball well from all distances this season (56.0% 2FG, 39.9% 3FG, 81.4% FT). Turnovers, however, have been a problem for Coach Sarunas Jasikevicius’s team. Barcelona leads the league in turnovers at 15.5 per game. Its main ballhandlers – Calathes, Leo Bolmaro and Adam Hanga – must try to avoid such mistakes. Barcelona excels at defensive rebounds, grabbing 24.3 per night. As always, getting Mirotic and Higgins involved should give Barcelona a better chance to win this game.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-5.0) at 1.95 with bet365
(Price correct at 30/12/2020, 09:45 CET, subject to change)

Milano – CSKA Moscow

AX Armani Exchange Milan (9-6) comes off a home loss and hopes to bounce back against the competition’s leader. Kevin Punter (14.7 ppg.) is Milan’s top scorer this season, followed by Shavon Shields (12.8 ppg.) and Malcolm Delaney (11.5 ppg.). CSKA Moscow (13-3) is on an 11-game winning streak, its longest under the current EuroLeague format. Mike James (20.6 ppg.), Darrun Hilliard (11.1 ppg.) and Nikola Milutinov (8.7 ppg., 8.0 rpg.) are CSKA’s top healthy players.

Milan has committed the fewest turnovers in the league, just 11.2 per game, and is fifth in steals (7.1 spg.). On defense, Delaney and Sergio Rodriguez must do their best to slow down the red-hot James. Milan, which ranks 17th in two-point shooting percentage (51.0% 2FG) and needs to be more effective inside the arc against a good defensive team like CSKA.

CSKA leads the EuroLeague in scoring (84.4 ppg.) despite ranking 17th in assists (14.9 apg.). Players like James, Darrun Hilliard and Toko Shengelia are great one-on-one players, plus CSKA leads the competition in fouls drawn at 22.4 per night. All of that makes CSKA’s offense unpredictable, as any player can step up at any given time. James has been on fire lately, however, averaging 24.3 points and 5.3 assists in the last 9 games, so CSKA should keep running its offense through its superstar guard.

Champions League tips tpday

Liverpool vs Real Madrid play in the Champions League final.

Who’s likely to start, who might be left out, and who is unavailable? We have brought together all the information available, so check out our Champions League final predictions today.

Saturday, 28/05/2022

  • Stade de France (80,698), Paris
  • Referee: Clement Turpin (France)
  • Real have won 13 Champions League titles (including the European Champions Cup) in 16 appearances in the final.
  • Liverpool have 6 Champions League titles (including the European Champions Cup) in 9 appearances in the final.

Road to the final

Liverpool wrapped up their on paper “tough group” (Atletico, Porto, AC Milan) with 6/6 wins. They then eliminated Inter, Benfica and Villarreal successively, winning on all 3 occasions and scoring 2+ goals on the road, while at home they only won against the Spaniards, drew with the Portuguese and were beaten by the Italians (0-2) in their only defeat in the competition this season.

Real Madrid cruised through the group stage (Inter, Sheriff, Shakhtar) with a 5-0-1 record. Their only loss was a shocking 1-2 defeat to Sheriff in Madrid. But Ancelotti’s team eliminated three championship contenders in… epic fashion. Against Paris Saint-Germain, they needed Benzema’s hat-trick in Madrid (3-1). The Frenchman scored 3 more goals in London against Chelsea (1-3) before his team beat the English side in extra time in the second leg. This was followed by two incredible games against Manchester City, losing 4-3 away, but scoring two goals after the 90 minutes in the replay and winning in extra time (3-1).

Liverpool vs Real Madrid possible line-ups

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keïta; Salah, Mané, Luis Díaz

Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Éder Militão, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Casemiro, Modrić; Valverde, Benzema, Vinícius Júnior

Liverpool vs Real Madrid prediction

The odds don’t show how tightly contested the final can be, with Liverpool given as favourites by all bookmakers, but Real are the side that has linked their name with European success. Liverpool may be more tired from their unsuccessful battle to win the Premier League, and in two finals this season they have drawn 0-0 with Chelsea and won the titles on penalties.

On the other hand, Real have had a chance to refuel over the last month and are expected to be fresh, so they offset the disadvantage of the Reds’ greater physicality.

Whew… tough to predict. But we’ll go with the “2-3 goals” bet as our main prediction, with the most likely score being 1-1. Finally, we think 2.37 on the Spanish side to win is too generous to pass up.

Football bullet Tip 1: 2-3 goals at 2.00

Football bullet Tip 2: Correct Score 1-1 at 7.00

Football bullet Tip 3: Real Madrid to win the Trophy at 2.37

Euroleague FInal Four 2022

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

Euroleague basketball predictions The Euroleague Final fot in the Final Four will be between Real Madrid and Anadolu Efes. Check our expert Euroleague predictions.

Our EuroLeague Final 4 tips appear under each mini game preview.

Real Madrid vs Efes Anadolu

  • Real Madrid has 26 wins against Efes, that has 13.

Anadolu Efes and Real Madrid will meet for the first time in the EuroLeague Championship Game, but they have played many important games recently, including the 2021 play-offs series, which Efes won and then went on to win the title in the Final Four a few weeks later.

In the current campaign, Real and Efes have met twice. Real trounced Efes 82-69 in their season opener, with newcomers Heurtel and Yabusele each scoring 18 points. Efes defeated Real 93-90 in Round 31 almost six months later, with Micic scoring 29 points.

The championship game in 2022 will be the latest chapter in this developing rivalry. It’s a defining moment for both, and only the victor will be fulfilled.

The final is completely unpredictable; we like Real’s victory at the odds of 2.00, but we will also predict two players’ special bets. Real Madrid’s Causeur proved in the semi-final that he is a big game player, and his job will be even more essential with Williams-Goss out, while Yabusele is testing his hand a lot, and the odds on the market of Over 1.5 three-point attempts are worth it from every angle!

basketball prediction Tip: Real Madrid win at 2.00

basketball prediction Tip 2: Causer Over 8.5 points at 1.90

basketball prediction Tip 3: Yabusele Over 1.5 three-point shot (scored) at 2.15

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

Euroleague basketball predictions The Euroleague Final 4 is here! Check the semifinals previews and our expert Euroleague predictions.

Our EuroLeague Final 4 tips appear under each mini game preview.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid

This season, Barcelona was one of the stronger rebounding teams in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, but it couldn’t match Real Madrid’s dominance on the boards.

Sarunas Jasikevicius’ team has conceded the fewest rebounds in the league this season, 31.2 per game, and outrebounded opponents by 3.2 per game. It had the third-most defensive rebounds (24.3 per game) and the fourth-most total rebounds (34.4 rpg.).

Real’s resurgent supremacy elevated it to a new level. Los Blancos dominated the league in rebounds (38.3 per game), defence boards (26.8 per game), and offensive boards (11.6 per game). It gave up the fewest rebounds (31.7 per game) and outrebounded opponents by an incredible 6.6 per game.

When Real met Barcelona this season, such was not the case. When the two teams played in Round 14, Barcelona won 36-29. After that, Barca won the battle of the boards 39-36 in Round 26. In El Clasico this season, Barcelona averaged 5 more boards per game than their opponents.

Matching those great defensive efforts in the semifinals could be the difference between Barcelona and the EuroLeague’s top rebounding club.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-3.5) at 1.90

Olympiacos vs Efes

Several figures stand out from Olympiacos and Efes’s prior games this season that could be worth watching in their semifinal clash.

Even though the teams won a game each, there was little else that was equal. Efes had 18 turnovers in each game, whilst the Reds had 26. Efes not only had more possessions, but they also shot substantially better, hitting 62.0%of their two-point attempts. Both teams tried 71 twos, but Olympiacos shot 53.5%, which was 6 less. Efes also had the best three-point shooting squad, making 20 of them (33.9%). The Reds converted 17 attempts at 30.9%.

Each game was won by the club that won the battle of the boards, with Olympiacos gathering 6 more rebounds across the two games. Even in the Round 26 game, which Efes lost, it outscored Olympiacos 90-105 in the performance index rating.

Olympiacos did get to the foul line more frequently, even if it did not shoot as well. The Reds converted 29 of 36 foul shots (80.6%), while Efes converted 25 of 27. (92.6%). Efes also had a superior season free-throw shooting percentage (82.1 percent -75.8%). However, if Olympiacos continues to draw a lot of fouls and puts Efes in foul trouble, that might be a game changer.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 157.5 at 1.90
